Julianne Hough To Star In Film With Tom Cruise
Julianne Hough is set to star opposite Tom Cruise in the upcoming movie Rock Of Ages.
The New Line adaption of the Broadway musical centers around rock hits of the 1980s by Journey, Joan Jett, Bon Jovi and Pat Benatar. It follows a couple that meets at the Sunset Strip club Rock of Ages, falls in love and tries to stay together while living the rock life.
Director Adam Shankman, who also directed Hairspray, will take on as both director and choreographer. He gave Julianne the news that she would be working with the famous hunk while she was at the airport.
"I asked her if she wanted to be in a movie with Tom Cruise and she wanted to not get on the plane so she could celebrate," Adam told Variety.com. "Her audition was surreal - maybe the best I've ever seen."
Mary J. Blige will also star in the film that will begin production in May.
Julianne had a role in the movie Burlesque and will also star in the Footloose remake, scheduled to hit theaters this fall.
